The Schuylkill County police chief who created a national stir on the internet is taking his fight to save his job to court.
Suspended Gilberton Chief Mark Kessler is seeking an injunction to stop the borough from holding his termination hearing in Lackawanna County later this month.
Kessler received national attention after posting profanity-laced gun-rights videos on YouTube.
Kessler wants his termination hearing in Schuylkill County. He said the additional travel time will make it harder for him to get witnesses to testify on his behalf.
His first termination hearing in October ended abruptly when someone dropped a gun on the floor.
